Goals: Stuttgart – Bayern Munich – Played on 03/04/ 2023
Bayern Munich did not find it difficult to return home with winning points, after defeating Stuttgart at home (2-1), today, Saturday, in the 23rd round of the German League.
The Bavarian double came with the signing of Matthias de Ligt and Eric Choupo-Moting in the two minutes (39 and 62), while Juan Perea scored Stuttgart’s only goal in the minute (88).
The victory gave Bayern the opportunity to regain the lead again by reaching the 49th point, ahead of Borussia Dortmund by goal difference, while Stuttgart stopped at 19 points in 15th place.
The match is the last rehearsal for the Bavarian giants before receiving Paris Saint-Germain at the Allianz Arena next Wednesday, in the second leg of the Champions League final.
The first chance of the meeting was through a stray shot from Koeman over the goal, then goalkeeper Fabian Bredlow parried Choupo-Moting brilliantly before it became clear that the Bayern striker was offside.
Kimmich fired a missile from outside the penalty area, but the Stuttgart goalkeeper was on the lookout, then Haraguchi hit a long-range missile, but the ball passed near the left post.
Immediately after that, Goritska had an opportunity to score the goal for Bayern after he met a cross with a direct shot into the penalty area, but it was not strong enough to settle in the arms of Berdlau.
The Stuttgart goalkeeper returned to deny Goritska a goal with a header, then a cross from a corner reached Obamecano, but he directed the ball strangely high to miss the opportunity to advance.
Sumer blocked a powerful shot from Silas inside the penalty area, which turned into a corner, then Mavropanos went up to a cross, but Matthias de Ligt pushed the ball away before it crossed the goal line.
De Ligt not only saved his team from being late in the score, but then succeeded in advancing near the Stuttgart penalty area, firing a long-range shot that the goalkeeper failed to clear to settle into his own net.
Stuttgart’s response almost came quickly through Silas, who reached a ball inside the penalty area to hit it hard, but it hit Kimmich and passed next to the post into a corner, to end the first half (1-0).
The first minutes of the second half did not witness serious chances until Bayern succeeded in extending their lead with a second goal after a pass from Mueller towards Choupo-Moting, and the latter easily put it in the goal.
As soon as the second goal was scored, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann made 3 substitutions at once by bringing in Sadio Mane, Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry at the expense of Chubu Moting, Musiala and Koeman.
Coulibaly tried to try his luck with a shot at Sumer’s goal, but the latter caught the ball easily, and then the owners of the land took control a little after that, but it was not crowned with serious chances at Sumer’s goal.
Two minutes before the end of normal time, Stuttgart managed to surprise its guest with the aim of reducing a header through substitute Perea, so that the ball settled in the far left corner, so that Sumir could only look at it.
The goal ignited the atmosphere in the stadium, as it restored hope for the home owners to equalize the score in the last minutes, which was almost achieved with a similar header by Coulibaly, whose ball passed next to the post.
Bayern almost destroyed Stuttgart’s hopes with the goal of killing the match in stoppage time, after a ball reached Mane, who strangely directed it above the empty goal before the match ended.
